I'll hopefully be picking up my XP1 in a week or so. My truck is a 2015 Ram Tradesman Diesel auto shortbed crew cab. Marc emailed me a picture today of the truck with the flatbed installed. I'm getting really excited.Attached File  image.jpeg   138.48K   69 downloads

Oh boy, It doesn't get any nicer than that. Congrats on the new camper.

Nice! Enjoy, explore!

 

I'm curious as to when you ordered the V1 and how long they needed your truck.

I am the other person - the one that bought an XPV1and was thoroughly disappointed with it and disgusted with their customer service. I sold it at a considerable loss after 6 months. It also managed to cost me thousands in repairs and upkeep during that 6 months. I now own an Alaskan which was built onto the XP flatbed. The problems inherent in the XP are too numerous to detail here. If anyone wants to know specifics they are welcome to ask.

To directly address the topic, I was transitioning from a Syncro Westfalia to the XP. What a disaster! Fortunately I didn't sell the VW right away because I needed to live in it several times while the XP was repaired.

What is the price on a camper like that?

 

First time I have heard of a problem with any XP. I looked at the V2, did not like the room inside compared to a FWC. The big one is in another class altogether. 

 

 

 

From XP's web site:

V2 – Compact

Camper with truck tray starting at $42,975

With the success of the V1 and the popularity of midsized trucks around the globe the V2 was born. The camper utilizes many of the same systems and construction methods developed for the V1, just in a more compact and lightweight package. It also stays true to the hard-sided pop-up design featured on the V1. By utilizing XPCamper’s unique truck tray system the V2 offers a huge about of living and storage space in an extremely compact package, while still providing you with tons of utility from your truck when the camper is removed. The pricing on the V2 offers an incredible value, which makes it the perfect introduction into the quality truck camper overland lifestyle.

I know that there are few negative reviews of XP available. I did lots of research before buying mine. It cost me about $80,000 so you can bet that I looked into it! After I sold it I posted on XP's site about my disappointment. I didn't want to appear to be slamming the company in public, so I invited people to contact me at my email. THEN I learned about other disappointed owners and resales. I wish that they had posted their experiences so that I could have seen the total picture before I made such an expensive mistake.

Florida,
When did you take delivery of your camper?
At $80,000 was it a V1 model?
